Dear Andreas, I did not know Susan, she did not know me. I joined rfc shortly before she was hospitalized. I was able to see the wit and sensitivity and the joy of life she shared. I followed your ups/downs with the transplant faithfully and was deeply saddened to hear that Susan had finaly reached the end of this journey. I would like to share with you the words to a song, sung by the folksinger Holly Near. These words have gotten me through the many losses I have recently faced (12 deaths in 5 years). > They are falling all around me, > The strongest leaves of my tree. > Every paper bring the news that, > The teachers of my sounds are moving on. > Death comes and rests so heavy, > Your face I'll never see, I'll never see you any more. > > But you're not gonna really leave me, > It is your path that I walk, > It is your song that I sing, > It is your load that I take on, > It is your air that I breath, > It's the record that you set that makes me go on. > It's your strength that helps me stand > You're not really, you're not really gonna leave me. > > I will try to sing my song right, > Be sure to let me hear from you. -Bernice Johnson Reagon Peace to you Andreas and to Susan
